Get to Know More About Cameron Design House: Makers of Bespoke Sculptural Lighting
How did the idea for the Cameron Design House come about? What drew you to want to create lighting structures?
I have always had a love for designing things. After university, I got a job running a coffee stand at the local market while continuing my passion of designing and making lights on the side.
I actually ended up selling my first ever piece to a client I had met at the coffee stand, and since then the company has grown to a size of 30 employees and we work with designers all around the world!
Tell us about your current collection.
This past year, we have launched several pieces including the Haara and Vesanto however most recently we launched the new Inari chandelier at NYCxDesign in May. The Inari, inspired by Lake Inari in Finland, furthers our organic exploration of light fluidity and entwining design.
Each piece is hand formed by our artisans to the desired size and no two pieces are ever alike, which makes the piece truly unique to each client.
Tell us about your process to creating a piece?
All of the pieces (from Cameron Design House) are bespoke and handmade to order in our London workshops. We have a wide variety of metal and powder-coated finishes available and we have an incredibly talented team of artisans who use an array of manufacturing techniques to make the pieces by hand.
What inspires you in your work?
My designs are inspired by natural and organic forms. We recently launched the Kasvaa, our first outdoor lighting pendant, which is made of 100% recycled brass. Making sure our pieces are fabricated using sustainable methods is important to me.
What are some of your favorite highlights from the past year?
This has been a busy year for us in New York!
We created the Haara Metsa, a 60-foot-long chandelier for Holiday House, which was installed down the stairwell of this beautiful showhouse. We also launched our pieces in the Sacco Carpet showroom in New York during NYCxDesign in May 2019.
We have been working on projects in the USA for several years and it is really exciting that our clients can now come and discover the pieces in person when in New York.
